I guess I'll be the one sporting an all white body, I just measured the rear of my car, cut according to the cutlines on the mazda 6, and I have more than 35mm of clearance from the measuring surface to the rear of the bumper. I knew the wings have to be chopped down to be legal but I never remembered having to worry about the rear bumper

That is a stupid rule especially when you cut on the cutlines and it fails.

Dont worry Matt, people are even more miserable when you lay it on them with a spraybomb.

Since these bodies were granted an extension (regarding meeting global body specs) would'nt it make sense that this rule would also be granted some fudge as long as the cut lines are used?

Did someone say they have never seen this teched?

[RE:
1/10 TOURING CAR T2 PROTOFORM 1476-00 6-30-2008
1/10 TOURING CAR T2 PROTOFORM 1476-01 2-28-2008 ]


As far as I can tell there are no bodys that have either 1476-00 or 1476-01 on their windshields
Did ROAR intended to temporarly extend the 1476-01 like it did the 1476-00 until 6-30-2008?

Given a the confusion between the 1476-00, -01, -02, - 03, and Protoform not actually puting the precise model number on the windshield will ROAR accept any PF1476 at this race?


If I show up with Protoform Body that has PF1476 on the wind sheild and the words All Purpose across the top of the windshield will I be able to run it legally at this race?

Howdy Race Fans,

I must admit I'm somewhat dissapointed to miss yet another carpet nationals. I think this is the third year in a row I haven't gone, but Skuba will be there even more prepared then I am. Good Luck To everyone, and save all the rule debates for "at the track".


Dawn- What venue will you be attending?? Or are you gonna fly back and forth??
